MICK Wehrman

MICK Wehrman is as happy as a fish in water that he has been working on Palm Island since late last year.

Friendly 29-year-old Mick drives an old 1973 model Mercedes truck for a Townsville company and has been carting road base stockpiled near the CBD to the Bamboo Creek road.

Mick works for THYX Company and said the Mercedes was a pleasure to drive.

"It is a great old truck and the views as I am driving around Palm are so good. It is a hidden paradise," he said.

Four trucks were picking up the road base to deliver to an area where it will be used to bituminise the rocky dirt road to Bamboo Creek.
